Any Rich Dad, Poor Dad fans?

Someone mentioned Robert Kiyosaki in another thread, but the thread went back on-topic, I responded, but did not want to derail anything, so I am moving it here.

I was obsessed with Robert Kiyosaki for a while, trying to find any advice that I could follow without paying first. I found the audio book and listened.

It was just a story. It did not contain any advice.

I ran across John T. Reed's blog and was impressed with how informative he was. He wasn't selling anything except reasonably-priced books. While I have heard countless people talking about buying foreclosed houses for pennies on the dollar, he said it was more like pennies off. He had reasonable, realistic, and boring advice.

Someone sent him "Rich Dad, Poor Dad:"

People comment that he did more research refuting that book than whoever wrote it and Reed said there was not any comparison.

Then Big Daddy Inc (or whatever) declared bankruptcy.

I do not worry about what Kiyosaki says.
